"We find our most soothing companionship in trees.  We lean against them and they never betray our trust; they shield us from the sun and from the rain; their spring welcome is a new birth which never loses its freshness; they lay their beautiful robes at our feet in autumn; in winter they stand and wait, emblems of patience and truth."
     - Oliver Wendell Holmes
